In 21st century United States of America, all dentists, whether in Palm Harbor, Tampa, New York City, Los Angeles or Boston have to be aware of Cosmetic Dentistry. There is no dental specialty called “Cosmetic Dentistry.”
Most Americans want whiter teeth, that is cosmetic in 2013, but 100 years ago gold front teeth might have been cosmetic dentistry. I think we are concerned with both looks and health. After all, healthy usually looks beautiful.
The man in this picture had been a patient in my Palm Harbor Dentist office for more than two decades before he finally “fixed” his front teeth, and he choose to have this dentistry done in his seventies. The Tampa Bay area of Florida is a beautiful place to live and work, our population is a little bit older than other areas of the USA. For this man, we had custom prefabricated provisional (temporary) crowns made in advance. This picture shows his smile with his temporary crowns as he left my Palm Harbor Dental office.
